NSPCC - National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children
As part of its People Strategy, **** is committed to maintaining a highly-skilled, wellmotivated and effective workforce which reflects the diversity of the community it
serves. This is vital in understanding and meeting the needs of the community.
To do this we must dismantle any barriers that exist in the way we attract and retain
staff. Our recruitment policies aim to positively address issues that may prevent people
from different backgrounds joining our organisation. We are proud to pursue a policy of
positive action in engaging under-represented communities, seeking their feedback and
providing advice in the recruitment process.
We also recognise that, once employed, there are times where people need support in
the workplace, either on a confidential basis or as a way of raising issues which impact
upon both individuals and groups.
**** aims to be an open, attractive and diverse employer. It seeks to recognise, value
and embrace the differences of all its employees; through these differences, we
become a more pro-active organisation, recognising issues before they become
problems and reflecting the wide and varied experience of different communities and
individuals in our decision-making.
